The production company are "very excited about it"
A new Marvel television series is in the works after the cancellations of Agent Carter and Inhumans.
Agent Carter was cancelled in 2016 after just two seasons while Inhumans was cut after just one season in 2017.
Now, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey has hinted at a new Marvel show, with the network already looking after Agents of SHIELD.
“In terms of Marvel, we have some things that we are in discussions with them right now that we are in development,” she told Deadline. While she wouldn’t reveal any specific details about the upcoming series, she did say that she was “very excited about it.”
Meanwhile, Caitlyn Jenner has revealed she wants to play a Marvel villain in the future. “In a Marvel movie, I want to play the baddest-ass lady you’ve ever seen in your life,” she said. “They got the wicked queen or the wicked lady. Just do the makeup and the outfit. And I got the deep voice.”
Jenner’s previous work includes a cameo in Transparent in 2016 as well as appearing in Murder, She Wrote, King Of The Hill, and The Hungover Games. Jenner also had a recurring part in 1980s TV show CHiPS.
Elsewhere in the Marvel universe, Dave Bautista said that he’ll leave the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise if James Gunn’s script isn’t used.
A replacement director for Gunn is yet to be announced, but he had turned in his script before the sacking. “Where I’m at right now is that if [Marvel] don’t use that script, then I’m going to ask them to release me from my contract, cut me out or recast me. I’d be doing James a disservice if I didn’t,” Bautista said.
“Nobody’s defending his tweets, but this was a smear campaign on a good man,” the actor continued. “I spoke to Chris Pratt the day after it happened and he’s a bit religious so he wanted time to pray and figure it out, but I was more like: fuck this. This is bullshit. James is one of the kindest, most decent people I’ve met.”
